The Ship Inn had already been a long time customer when the new owner Steve took over. Steve and Lisa run another successful pub and restaurant, The Kings Head in Rye so knew exactly what they wanted.

Our first job was to put down slip-resistant Altro Stronghold 30 flooring to the kitchen and its surrounding storerooms, prep rooms and dishwasher rooms.
Some of the old kitchen equipment could be re-used and was in good condition after receiving a service however the commercial kitchen layout was poor so after consultation with the client, a new design going a more efficient workflow was created.

The old extraction system was in fairly poor condition and not compliant with current regulations so an entirely new system was designed and installed along with a safety interlock system.

The pub received a high-quality full refurbishment to all of its public areas and guest rooms upstairs and now offers open fireplaces, comfortable accommodation and a seasonally inspired menu.
